CLIMBING ONE 9C IS GREAT BUT CLIMBING TWO OR THREE 9CS IS EVEN BETTER

Adam Ondra on his future

"In the near future I still want to focus on sport climbing as I am definitely sure that climbing one 9c is great but climbing two or three 9cs is even better. Therefore I want to focus on the sport climbing level and try to push my limits even further and see if I can possibly send a 9c even faster than Silence. Because in the end, Silence took me almost two years.

For another 9c, I don’t think I will be super motivated to go back to Flatanger because I think it would be nice to climb 9c in different climbing areas as well. The ones that come to my mind where it might be actually possible are maybe some climbing areas in France such as St. Leger, Arco in Italy, or maybe even my home climbing area in Moravian Karst. But I haven’t tried these projects enough to really know whether they are 9b, 9b+, or 9c or even 9c+. So I just have to get in shape and go try them, try the moves, try them a lot and only then I can finally find out if they are actually even possible.
Also, for the next September, I’m definitely very motivated to be very well prepared for the World Championships that takes place in Innsbruck."
